A Recap of the Jaycees Bridal Expo!

by Jenny Bryde 7. February 2015 01:39

Oh my sweetness, we had a busy and wonderful time at last weekend's Bridal Expo organized by the Jaycees!  Hundreds of brides, grooms, family members, and friends filed through the River Center in downtown Davenport as they spoke to vendors, tasted samples, and checked out all the amazing displays and designs.  It was so inspirational to view what vendors brought, and it gave us so many great ideas for 2015 weddings!  

Of course, QCWeddings.com was there to give out free info labels to brides so that they didn't have to write their names over and over again for all the amazing give aways and info sign ups!  We were also promoting two really fun wedding related events coming up in the near future - Brides Bingo and the Bride and Groom Garage Sale.  More info to come soon about both of those events!

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day:

The Davenport Jaycees Bridal Expo is Coming Soon! January 31st!

by Jenny Bryde 12. January 2015 00:25

It's Wedding Show Season!! Wa hoo! The New Year rings in, and we jump right in with some major fun at our favorite bridal show around - the Davenport Jaycees Bridal Expo.  It's the biggest of the big with over 150 vendors and this year they are celebrating 30 YEARS in business! If you've been to bridal shows before this one, then you know how much fun they are and how great of an opportunity they are to gather info and speak with potential wedding vendors.  Bridal shows serve as a one stop shop for your wedding, and whether you're just starting to plan or tying up last minute details, there's something here for you.  If anything, go for the cake samples and support a good cause as all the event proceeds go to women and children in need in the QC!!!  

In honor of their 30th “pearl” anniversary, the Davenport Jaycees Bridal Expo is offering a special prize opportunity this year – the chance to win a one-of-a-kind pair of genuine pearl earrings from Revell Jewelers. The Jaycees Expo also has bridal seminars that take place over lunch that will give you some great insights on trending wedding topics, like setting up your wedding “timeline”, figuring out invitation etiquette, or using Pinterest to your wedding-planning advantage.  

QCWeddings.com always has a booth, AND WE SHOULD BE YOUR FIRST STOP because we hand out FREE information labels for you.  You can order your labels in advance or you can come to our booth and give us your info.  WHY DO I NEED LABELS? Because there are hundreds of prizes or information lists that you will want to be included on, and once you've written your name, address, phone, email, and wedding date a dozen or so times, your hand will start to cramp up!  Instead, take one of our labels, and slap it down on the page ready to go, easy peasy!  HOW CAN I PRE-ORDER MY FREE LABELS?  Visit http://tiny.cc/labels or email jenny@qcweddings.com with your wedding info: name, address, phone number, email address, and wedding date!

Details:  January 31st from 9 to 4 at the River Center in Downtown Davenport.  Admission:  Tickets are $10 if purchased in advance online at www.jcexpo.com, or $12 at the door.  There are nearly 100 raffle prizes to be given away from Jaycee booth from vendors, that include free custom invitations, free engagement sessions, and even some free reception hall rentals. We’ve also added a “bridal passport” this year. Visit all the special stops and get entered to win a spa prize!  Our vendors will be in Great Hall and Mississippi Room (a recently updated listing is on www.jcexpo.com under "Planning a Wedding"). We’ve got seven vehicles that will be around this year, and even some portable catering options to pack a punch to your reception or rehearsal dinner!
